will be joining us. former special assistant to president george w. bush with us. conservative columnist and culture among our guests tonight. we begin with the very latest on the american killed in the hostage situation in algeria. fox disaster security correspondent jeff griffin with our report. >> in exchange for two american hostages, the kidnappers want to convicted terrorists released from u.s. prison. incarcerated for life for his role in the 1993 world trade center bombing and a pakistan in are a scientist who shot to american soldiers in afghanistan . the state department immediately ruled that out. >> the united states does not negotiate with terrorists. >> the state department, pentagon, and white house all were quick to call this attack terrorism. >> let's not forget, this is an act of terror. the perpetrators are the terrorists. >> terrorists should be on notice. there will find no sanctuary, no refuge, not in algeria, north africa, not anywhere. >> the u.s. military sent a c130 and a transport plane to evacuate the wounded, but the algerians are still rejecting any foreign
-- reagan, george h.w. bush and george w. bush, and also a counselor to former vice president dick cheney. good to see you. mary, happy new year. >> happy new year to you. thanks for having me. >> well, you have been through this before, and you have seen the risks, the perils of second terms. looking at it from afar, from outside the beltway, what are the big challenges that you think president obama has to be concerned about? >> every term it has been exacerbating a lot of the president's weaknesses. if he wants to get along, if he wants to make some progress with republicans, he has to get be less self-righteous. that could be played earlier. he keeps presenting these false choices that it's either getting -- you're either political, you want an a from the nra or you want safe school, safe children. if you have an opposite view, an opposing view, you can't get to the table if the president is going to set you up as the demon in every case. he immediate to be less self-refr he shall. he needs to take more responsibility. one thing that's happened here is the statute of limitations has r
clinton term and the second term of president george w. bush. gentlemen, let's start with a simple question. joe, to you, is there a second-term curse that all second-term presidents face or is that mythology? >> i think it's mythology. it's circumstances. i think this second term is starting with a little wind at his back. remember, the president came in in a terrible economic crisis. you know, if you listen to a lot of the economists, things are turning around. that's a significant difference and, you know, in politics, you face head winds and sometimes the wind behind your back. it really feels like this could be a very positive time. >> i don't think it's a myth. second terms have been tough, traditionally, but no magic to it. getting the economy under "control" will be very, very important. the president faces one problem, though, and we become almost a parliamentary system in the actions of legislative bodies and he's got a republican house that he's got to find a rhythm to work with him. president clinton did that, joe, his second term we were able to balance the budget for
come to this extremist point from what we have heard to president george w. bush resigning? there are a couple of things going on here. they are coming to an end. which is good news for the rest of us. there has been a 30 year drift since reagan to the right in the republican party. reagan when he made those statements didn't have to deal with rush limbaugh. he said something at that point and you also have a natural evolution of special interest groups and it is not just the nra. it is both sides of the abortion debate. it is some of the environmentalists. they take the most extreme position possible in order to raise money from their most devoted ne nat ticks. i know members who resigned in the past year because a lot of the stuff that was coming out from that organization before this election was really vile stuff about the president. and they have gone off the deep end. here is ronald reagan in a 1999 ceremony. >> i want to tell all of you here today something that i'm not sure you know. you do know that i'm a member of the nra. and my position on the right to bear arms
to attend the inauguration. george w. bush 43 says he can't attend due to his father's health and his recent long hospitalization. and president clinton has gone public about something people have noticed about him for some time. a tremor in his hands. it was particularly evident during our last interview with him this past summer. he says in an interview he grew quite concerned about it, but was so greatly relieved when he learned it's age-related and not parkinson's that he doesn't worry about it all that much anymore. >>> when we come back, one woman's home-grown idea.

, negotiating a global treaty is hard work and obama has been no better than george w. bush was. a lot of people have stopped talking about those issues have gotten involved in specific small things, like reversing their position on cracking, which used to be seen as a green energy and a lot of people are opposing. neil: maybe this is a healthy development for folks like you and people have come to realize that you have to have money to invest. >> we do. public investments are going on. they're going of the united states. >> but it's not coming out of thin air. >> okay, but it's not an investment. we are investing. $70 billion. >> not entirely, it is creating green energy jobs. >> do think you're getting as much bang for the buck trying to do so? >> well, yes, we are anticipated to see 4.4 million jobs. neil: but what about this year? i would check back. >> you know, if you look at every sector -- neil: my argument is that we have not delivered on some of this. i just don't think certain things have panned out. >> it's about money and people don't see a return for their investment. they say, oka
thing. obviously, george w. bush would focus people involved in the war on terror. and people who had more money in their pockets as a result of the tax cut. >> neil: in other words, they all do this to varying degrees. >> they do. with obama, though, you will get, because the question are you better off than you were four years ago was a prominent one in the campaign, obama ended up winning but the republicans still believe there are indices, most important unemployment where the answer is no. >> neil: always a pleasure. >> thank you. >> neil: ahead of the coverage of swearing in, boy are stars looking it up. >> a terrific story. >> that guy goes for it. >> made you crack up a joker. >> so much fun. never takes himself too seriously. >> just meeting him, intimidating. >> i'm so, you know, cool and generous. it's not just flexing his muscles. and saying a one-liner. >> neil: that is just, hey, can't tell you the number of people. they weren't talking about you. yes, they were. you can see for yourself why on monday. 11:00 a.m. fox business network. we'll be there for the inauguration.

, and is it their egos are so precious, they can't acknowledge what they said about george w. bush, enhanced interrogation? barack obama was wrong and bush was right his claim to fame wouldn't have happened, if bush didn't have the the insight, is it ego? >> to support what howard says, any means necessary, i support those interrogation techniques. if we can use those techniques against bad people that want to do bad things to americans and you know, hell, i'll hold them down myself. i mean, it saves lives. it's one of many pieces of kit in a toolbox and regardless of whether or not you want to face up to reality and realize that you do have to use extreme measures against these terrorists, it just has to be done, and thank goodness, good people are willing to do some dirty work. >> sean: but we also have to put some perspective on it, howard, and this three people gotten ha gotten-- got enhanced interrogation, which led to the courier, and to bin laden. i give him credit for, and liberals seem not to be able to hear that, which seems to be connected to this reaction to the movie. >> sean, w
vote are not yet at that point. it was just eight years ago that george w. bush got 44% of the latino vote, but if they keep this up much longer, they are in serious threat of the same thing happening with latino vote that happened with the black vote. >> you have to remember, it happened really fast. nixon got 40% of the black vote. by the time carter came along, you had a big dent in that black vote for the democratic party. i think something jose said is really important. not only are the democrats really now a part of the minority. they're also the younger party, the you youth party. you are talking about 50,000 latinos turning 18 every month. the democratic party is practically at the birthday party registering them to be democrats. the voter registration numbers in florida alone, as i'm sure they know very well, they are accelerating the registration of latino democrats and latino independents. the republican party has a tiny, tiny number and percentage of those new voters, so being the younger party, democrats also have the vocabulary to speak to these voters. they're not using
to war in iraq, that is the original sin of the george w. bush era in america. but it does not mean that they cooked up all that fake and misleading intelligence all by themselves. some of it came from enemies of saddam and iraqi exiles and expats who shoved it to the u.s., knowing it was false, but hoping we would nevertheless fall for it because they wanted us to invade. that recent history of the u.s. and how we get into wars these days looms large. it looks large particularly on days like this when we see bombshell headlines like this one. our friend josh rogan at foreign policy tonight reporting that someone inside the obama administration says that he or she has seen a cable that if the information in that cable is true would be a very scary thing. the headline, as you can see there, "chemical weapons used in syria." chemical weapons used. nobody is known to have used chemical weapons in 25 years. we know syria has them. but have they used them in their civil war? because that really would change everything. but look back at that headline again. the part before the part that w

this because long term the republican party has to fix this at the national level. >> george w. bush tried to address this head on. what do you think about the controversy now? >> well, frankly, i think that you can look at both parties and find things you don't like. in the republican party it's extremely small sliver. i suspect there's people in the democratic party that have some very old views. i'm disappointed that secretary powell would only look in one direction and that's the republicans. i think there's a hostility in much of the liberal wings of the political party towards organized religion. i think it's intolerance of the left twashd people of good faith on the right and that worries me. i wish colin powell had talked about that as well. i wish colin powell had talked about the implications of chunk hagel talking about the jewish lobby that intimidates people. he said, make the jews pay. colin powell could have talked about that and whether that was a dark strain or is his focus only on when republicans act wrong? chuck hagel did, too, in these circumstances. it's a topic worth
department under presidents, both george w. bush and bill clinton. why do you make these assertions coming back from iran? did you have high-level meetings in which you were privy to information our state department is not privy to? >> well, we met with a range of people. we met with people from the government but students at the university. we were actually invited by the university of tehran. we met with students, professors. we met with a range of people in iran, and what we come back with is a sense that walking in the streets of tehran, going to the university, going into the marketplace, this is not a country that is on the brink of implosion, that sanctions are somehow going to cripple and force it to concede to american or any other demands. and this is something that when we did the research for our book, we found historically, we have seen american so-called iran experts predict literally since the founding of the republic of iran back in 1979, that this political order is on the brink of implosion or regime change. this is something coming back from our most recent trip to iran.
with fellow texan george w. bush but it could have meant that he didn't have to end up in the oprah chair at this point. and that's sat because a lot of people in my family who would have been willing to love lance armstrong no matter what because of the work he did on cancer, it was very painful to see last night, not because he cheated, but because he didn't quite get the equation of what he meant to people. and if he did, it's not only that he wouldn't have acted this way in the last several years, he would never have responded to the questions like he did last night. >> we're going to be watching part two on this interview with lance armstrong. now that he's come clean, could he face criminal charges for coming clean? we're going to take a look at what could be next for lance armstrong. >>> and after last night's interview, live strong gave the following statement. we at the live strong foundation are disappoint by the news that lance armstrong misled people during and after his cycling career, even us. in the wake of our disappointment, we also express our gratitude to lance as a sur
comments. >> remember he worked for george w. bush, and looking back on the situation as peter was just reporting on, saying today we face a debt bond and that the explosion will be deafening the way he put it is so predictable it is like flying into a cliff now it is right in front of you. he says will be met more painful than 2008, 2009. nothing we can really tell at this point. he said by the will, and the money to solve this. it was not like he was controlling cost at all. he said you look at your giving aid to the arsonist. that is how people continue to take it today even getting an accounting lift to banks allow them to write off some of these they have to make on the bases of mortgage debt, so we're still bailing out these banks. couple other things he said the "wall street journal" who only got 30 minutes with the treasury secretary which i thought was interesting. he was asked directly or the banks still too big to fail? he kind of stepped out of that question, but he said the country is in better shape today to fix one of these situations, to bail out one of these banks. but
. and it is what gave george h.w. bush to take that executive action that he took banning some rifles. in 1989, two months after that schoolyard massacri in stockton, california. years later, president clinton followed in his footsteps. president clinton, in 1998, took executive action as president to ban the importation of more than 50 different kinds of semiautomatic assault weapons. and it was in addition to the assault weapons ban. this was further action taken by the president alone in 1998. he took executive action to ban the importation of certain kinds of guns. today, president obama became yet another modern president to use his executive authority for reform of gun-related laws. president obama did not use his authority as his predecessors did. and i mean that in this sense. none of the executive actions that president obama did today have anything to do with banning specific weapons, banning the importation of spefblg weapons the way that previous presidents did. what distinguishes what president obama did today is the breath of policy changes that he enacted. and, yes, on some access to

to president george w. bush fran townsend joins us now. welcome, fran. >> hi. >> we understand the united states has a plane in algeria and it's transporting americans and other westerners out of the country, some of those people are injured. do you know anything about this operation? >> no, carol. but, you know, what we're hearing is that the algerians couldn't coordinate with any of the foreign governments that had hostages on the ground. it's not all that surprising. it's not the way you want it to go if you're the american president or the british prime minister, but they acted very quickly, very swiftly, and very strongly with the lots of force. you know, you worry, that's the first question that comes to mind of those unaccounted for. there will be those who were killed in this operation, you know, not just bad guys, but inevitably when you launch this kind of military assault with this many people involved, you they never came. and for most of my career, there wasn't that much of that, two things changed. >> there wasn't that much of what? >> there wasn't that much out of competiti
what the definition of "suitable for sporting use" is. george h.w. bush narrowed the definition which excluded it. president obama could lawfully narrowed the definition again. he cannot make it illegal to own or use, but he can make it illegal to import. lori: why does he have this privilege to begin with? >> that is a very interesting question. the congress is lazy. the president sometimes take power from congress like starting wars and congress does not do anything about it. three, they are political hot potatoes. they assume not to address so it gives the president discretion. the drug enforcement administration which is part of homeland security, monetary the sales of heavy weapons. they do this by walking into the shops that sell them every six months and demanding to see the books. they have the right to do that. it will preoccupy these sellers which means it will cost them more to operate business. they will sell less and they will charge more. there are little things that the president could do within his authority. lori: it is an interesting question about the president even
is that in 2000, i mean, there was an atmosphere around incoming president george w. bush, by some democrats, that this is not a legitimate presidency. you know, we're going to fight him every inch of the way. and that same thing came through f for eight years and it continued. it's no surprise -- >> it's not a surprise that it preceded bush with clinton. he was impeached. yesterday we had the first member of congress to stand up and utter a threat of impeachment against president obama. steve stockman, republican of texas, over the gun issue, said, i will file an impeachment resolution against him. so it really is much the same. there's an oppositional, almost insurgent republican party and democrats who have been sometimes naive about what the opposition really feels, what they're really ready to do, especially the sort of core, hard-core wing of the republican party. >> hey, peter, robert gibbs was just on with us, and it's something you just mentioned. the level of exhaustion within the white house, of the people re-interviewed, that you went back to this year, four years later, how many
